This series is comprised of three body focused workshops leading up to the opportunity to perform, but the purpose is not about the stage. The purpose is about you, and your writing, in whatever form it takes. Come with a piece in progress or an empty page, whether you're experienced or just begun. Body Language is a chance to connect with this bundle of atoms, neurons and nerve endings we walk around in. To put some words to the six plus senses that we have. To give voice to the feelings, the desires, and the experiences that living is made of. That knowing at our center that connects and repels. Participants will take part in three workshops, each lasting four hours (with a midway break), comprised of writing exercises, group brainstorming, and feedback sessions. Participants who sign up for the entire series will also get up to 1 hour of individual feedback from Sossity via email or google docs on the pieces they are working on in the series. The Friday following the last workshop will be October Dirty Queer, which is a great potential stage to try out the new pieces on!* (*All pieces read at Dirty Queer must be about sex, sexuality or gender, as usual. A resource guide of local open mics and useful links for writers will be provided.) Week One: The brain. This workshop is about finding our words, and laying a strong foundation to build them on. We'll use guided writing exercises, group brainstorming, and constructive feedback sessions to find bits of language that speak to us, and begin the writing process on at least one piece. Week Two: The gut. This workshop is about connecting our new language to the impulses that we receive from that secondary bundle of neurons in our gut - that instinct, or intuition, that we're so often taught to ignore. We'll use similar tools, but take our pieces to the next level – editing for visual and vocal impact. Week Three: The mouth. This workshop is about opening the pathway from your voice to their minds, gut and heart – framing those words with air shaped with intention for the impact you want to make. We'll work on timing, breathing, and intonation, as well as a final level of polishing and constructive feedback. During the spaces between these workshops, participants will have homework assignments, and the opportunity to solicit up to 1 hour of email feedback* from Sossity on the pieces being work shopped. (*No more than 4 email exchanges total, time to be tracked by Sossity with a 15 min notice to the participant when it's almost up.) $25/workshop or $60 for all three* (*pre-paid only) 4 low income scholarships ($10/workshop)* (*essay submission, preference given to people of color/people with disabilities) 11am-3pm at In Other Words - 15 person cap, 18+, bring your own food for the break. Accessibility info: + no steps to the door, or inside the building + slight ramp between the two areas of the building + aprox 3' width for the entrance + gender neutral bathroom (variable wheelchair access to the bathroom - it's wide, but there is a 90 degree turn from hallway to room, and no rail) + ramp to the stage + sturdy folding chairs and some couches + we ask that folks be low scent or scent free + please leave your furry companions at home unless they are service animals If you have any questions, please contact Sossity: sossitywrites@gmail.com

IMPORTANT SOLIDARITY UPDATE: The PDX People's Climate March is supporting the #DontShootPDX movement. The cause is necessary and its a common unity factor. Come march in solidarity this Sunday and help improve our communities health index. The ACLU of Oregon will hold a training this Saturday starting at 1 p.m. and continuing throughout the day till 4 p.m. ACLU organizers and Atty will train people on their basic rights when dealing with law enforcement. Are you confident in asserting your rights when dealing with police? Do you know when an officer has the right to search you? Many of us do not have the knowledge and confidence to stand up for our basic rights during an encounter with law enforcement. Knowing these rights and how to assert them should be a part of our basic education but, sadly, it is not. http://aclu-or.org/content/know-your-rights-your-rights-oregon In our community there are so many instances of hate crimes against blacks, women, our cities homeless, poor, disabled and our youth... we need to show consistent solidarity. People are afraid to be wrong, we are embarrassed by the way people view us and it keeps us from speaking out when its necessary. Tomorrow people in Ferguson will be marching. They aren't concerned about who is not standing with them because they are filled with pain. We need to follow our passion and make a stand with them. We will continue to update this event page and we ask that everyone come out to these gatherings so we can show the City of Portland, state of Oregon that violence against the people isn't acceptable. We need to start filing complaints regarding hate crimes against police officers and anyone else who discriminates and especially if it becomes physical. Join Us in Solidarity with the people of Ferguson, MO in honor of #MichaelBrown ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! Groups on the ground in St. Louis are calling for nationwide solidarity actions in support of Justice for Mike Brown and the end of police and extrajudicial killings everywhere. On Saturday at 1pm -- every week after the murder of Mike Brown by a Ferguson police officer--in St. Louis they gathered at the location that Mike was shot in the Canfield Apartment buildings. We ask that you gather at the places in your community on Saturdays where police and extrajudicial killings have occurred to memorialize lives that have been lost and demand justice by ending systemic violence upon communities of color. We know that the murder of Mike Brown in St. Louis is just one of hundreds of murders per year by extrajudicial means throughout this country. There are too many names to list: Mike Brown, Trayvon Martin, Eric Garner, Renisha McBride, Amadou Diallo and so many others. Just in the past weeks since Mike’s murder, the Los Angeles Police killed a 24 year-old man who was laying down when shot. Enough is enough--these killings must stop. We must end the systems of white supremacy, police brutality and inequality for communities of color that lead to these police killings. We hope that with renewed attention on this issue, we can widen the conversation to address both justice for Mike Brown and the underlying systems of oppression that play out against people of color on a day-to-day basis. Please join us this and everybSaturday in calling for Justice for Mike Brown and the end of extrajudicial killings everywhere. We know that we will need powerful visuals and strategies to support our movement. In St. Louis, people have suggested using black caskets, photographs of those lost, and chalk outlines to send our message. Strategically, this nationwide event will be a tactic to help community members understand their personal rights and push for broad-based action on the issue of extrajudicial killings. Regardless of where you are, you can help move this fight forward by hosting an action in solidarity with St. Louisans demanding Justice for Mike Brown. Mike’s death was not an isolated incident, and we hope that groups around the country will use this moment to lift up and reenergize their own campaigns against systematic violence and the prison industrial complex. http://www.facebook.com/events/719132681455778/

Wherever You Are
AWHOOOO!!!!!!! Prayer Walkers for the Wolf call out to you! We have made our way on foot over the jagged peaks of doug fir nation and across to the rainshadowed sagebrush, juniper and ponderosa country. We pass landscapes that have been disturbed by cows and sheep brought over to denude the land. Their grazing style, their manure, and their water habits are foreign to this place. Instead of enriching the land and fitting into the web of life, they break it down – poisoning the water, destroying the native plants and displacing indigenous species like elk and antelope and their predators, who all fill niches here. Cows and sheep? Well, they may fill burger buns but their presence puts into jeopardy the health of entire ecosystems. Boycott Beef. As we push forward into the heart of wolf-killing territory, we ask that our domesticated and rewilding brothers and sisters, wherever they are, stand with us for our wild family. Pass the call-out along to your networks. During the week of Sept. 23rd to Sept. 30th, consider these options and take action with your friends and families: -learn about which wild animals and plants shouldbe living in your community and work to bring them back through your local watershed group. If there isn’t one, start it! - boycott all palm oil products…that includes Nutella (Why?) Find oils that are produced locally. -talk to your friends and family members who trophy hunt about respecting the wild -find your local federal fish and wildlife office and stage a protest for handing out trophy hunting permits -slip literature about respecting the wild into trophy hunting magazines (check about local legality of this one!) -meet Indigenous elders in your community and ask them how you can help. Turtle Island’s Indigenous people, for 520 years, have been fighting the same kind of colonial mindset that continues to destroy the wild. -Refuse to support the zoo and instead take children to sanctuaries or the local wild places and discuss what native animals and plants are there or should be there Don’t forget to leave a comment and let us know that you’re taking a stand with us! http://eco-punk.org/wolfwalk http://www.facebook.com/events/741800575857089/

WORKSHOP - It's the Little Things that Count - $15 It’s the little things that count. We all know that. But somehow in the throws of business, this tenant goes out the window. Every year Green Rising gives out our Worst Customer Service of the Year Award. Sometimes it’s because of the little things like not having a contact number, ANYWHERE, on your website during a client emergency. Other times, it’s transferring and dropping client calls. Empowering each employee to be an ambassador and concierge for your brand empowers the client too. The last thing an unhappy client says before they walk out the door is usually...absolutely nothing. And then your hands are tied. You may not know what little things are important for your business, but this workshop will help you identify the weak links before they happen. Sign up now. [purchase_link id="5334" style="button" color="orange" text="Purchase"] At the end of this workshop, you will have knowledge that allows you to identify and prevent potential weaknesses within your business or organization.

We open our season with a play Third Rail has been dying to produce since it was the hit of Portland Center Stage's 2009 JAW Festival, MIDDLETOWN by Will Eno. The residents of Middletown lead lives that are probably not too different from ours. They wake up, go to work, say hello to their neighbors, fix the plumbing, seek advice on parenting, and try to live lives that are as rewarding as possible. It's all fairly ordinary. And yet...ordinary doesn't even begin to scratch the surface of this quirky, word-frenzied, refraction of OUR TOWN. MIDDLETOWN is a quizzical fable about life in all its sweetness and pain, joy and wonder, beginnings and endings.

    Basic Rights Oregon is committed to ensuring everyone in our community as well as our allies in communities of color have access to basic needs. Everyone needs a safe way to get to school, work and church which is why we stand firmly with our community to support the Oregon Safe Roads Act slated to be on the November ballot. After working as a part of broad coalition on this in the 2013 legislative session, we are now launching a major grassroots effort to talk to our LGBT families about the importance of voting YES on Safe Roads to maintain this incredible victory. But, it’s going to take YOU to help spread the word of this important issue. Basic Rights will be joining our allies and coalition partners to host a canvass on Saturday, September 27th from 1pm -4pm. Join us as we register voters, hit up really fun community activities, and get the word out! WHAT: Safe Roads Canvass WHEN: Saturday September 27th, from 1pm – 4pm WHERE: Oregon AFSCME Council, 6025 E Burnside St. *Food will be provided!

IMPORTANT SOLIDARITY UPDATE : Members of the #DontShootPDX group are ready to present "Know Your Rights" training to your group, students or organization. We believe that part of changing the brutal force culture in PPD is to arm citizens with information about their rights. Having some dialogue and sharing videos to help make us accountable for our safety. The ACLU of Oregon will hold a training this Saturday starting at 1 p.m. and continuing throughout the day till 4 p.m. ACLU organizers and Atty will train people on their basic rights when dealing with law enforcement. Are you confident in asserting your rights when dealing with police? Do you know when an officer has the right to search you? Many of us do not have the knowledge and confidence to stand up for our basic rights during an encounter with law enforcement. Knowing these rights and how to assert them should be a part of our basic education but, sadly, it is not. http://aclu-or.org/content/know-your-rights-your-rights-oregon In our community there are so many instances of hate crimes against blacks, women, our cities homeless, poor, disabled and our youth... we need to show consistent solidarity. People are afraid to be wrong, we are embarrassed by the way people view us and it keeps us from speaking out when its necessary. Tomorrow people in Ferguson will be marching. They aren't concerned about who is not standing with them because they are filled with pain. We need to follow our passion and make a stand with them. We will continue to update this event page and we ask that everyone come out to these gatherings so we can show the City of Portland, state of Oregon that violence against the people isn't acceptable. We need to start filing complaints regarding hate crimes against police officers and anyone else who discriminates and especially if it becomes physical. Join Us in Solidarity with the people of Ferguson, MO in honor of #MichaelBrown ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! Groups on the ground in St. Louis are calling for nationwide solidarity actions in support of Justice for Mike Brown and the end of police and extrajudicial killings everywhere. On Saturday at 1pm -- every week after the murder of Mike Brown by a Ferguson police officer--in St. Louis they gathered at the location that Mike was shot in the Canfield Apartment buildings. We ask that you gather at the places in your community on Saturdays where police and extrajudicial killings have occurred to memorialize lives that have been lost and demand justice by ending systemic violence upon communities of color. We know that the murder of Mike Brown in St. Louis is just one of hundreds of murders per year by extrajudicial means throughout this country. There are too many names to list: Mike Brown, Trayvon Martin, Eric Garner, Renisha McBride, Amadou Diallo and so many others. Just in the past weeks since Mike’s murder, the Los Angeles Police killed a 24 year-old man who was laying down when shot. Enough is enough--these killings must stop. We must end the systems of white supremacy, police brutality and inequality for communities of color that lead to these police killings. We hope that with renewed attention on this issue, we can widen the conversation to address both justice for Mike Brown and the underlying systems of oppression that play out against people of color on a day-to-day basis. Please join us this and everybSaturday in calling for Justice for Mike Brown and the end of extrajudicial killings everywhere. We know that we will need powerful visuals and strategies to support our movement. In St. Louis, people have suggested using black caskets, photographs of those lost, and chalk outlines to send our message. Strategically, this nationwide event will be a tactic to help community members understand their personal rights and push for broad-based action on the issue of extrajudicial killings. Regardless of where you are, you can help move this fight forward by hosting an action in solidarity with St. Louisans demanding Justice for Mike Brown. Mike’s death was not an isolated incident, and we hope that groups around the country will use this moment to lift up and reenergize their own campaigns against systematic violence and the prison industrial complex. http://www.facebook.com/events/719132681455778/

This event if free of charge and open to all age groups. The general idea is a non-hierarchical, open, feminist discussion group that welcomes everyone and talks about all issues of oppression/working towards equality, as well as delving into the history of feminism and surrounding issues. It is the facilitator's hope that we can meet, share information, learn from one another, and create a culture of love and support that is not limited to our meetings, but that we can take out into the world. The first meeting is going to be about how the meetings will go, as everyone's input is needed to inform the direction of the group. However, at this point the idea is to have a central discussion topic each week, possibly having occasional speakers on certain topics, as well as attendee presentations. There is also hope to have a period of time each meeting to discuss relevant, current events, global and local, in politics and social issues, as well as the media's influence in the struggle for justice and equality. Another element possible in the meetings is a time for attendees to, at their will, open up about personal experiences such discrimination, sexual violence, or positive experiences, and and ask for advice and get support from the group for relevant situations they may want help with (though we will not be an official crisis center). Our activities may include event planning, such as a Slut Walk, arts and crafts, such as zine making, and film screenings. For questions, please contact Stephanie at stephaniesulger08@gmail.com.

The Liberation-Based Healing Conference presents strategies that promote relational healing and liberation from the oppressive patterns that structure society. This year’s conference theme is Speaking Truth to Power: Decolonization Through Liberation-Based Healing. Participants will learn to apply decolonizing practices to community and domestic violence, education, trauma, mental health and wellness, religious and spiritual practices, poverty, and youth empowerment. On day one we will hear from therapists, teachers, and community activists from across North America who will describe initiatives created in their communities that promote healing, equity and access for all, and will engage participants in dialogue, inquiry and social action strategies. Day two will bridge learning and strategies from local community members and activists to envision opportunities to form new alliances and generate liberation-based healing practices for grassroots community change. Participation in day two only is free and open to the public.

This series is comprised of three body focused workshops leading up to the opportunity to perform, but the purpose is not about the stage. The purpose is about you, and your writing, in whatever form it takes. Come with a piece in progress or an empty page, whether you're experienced or just begun. Body Language is a chance to connect with this bundle of atoms, neurons and nerve endings we walk around in. To put some words to the six plus senses that we have. To give voice to the feelings, the desires, and the experiences that living is made of. That knowing at our center that connects and repels. Participants will take part in three workshops, each lasting four hours (with a midway break), comprised of writing exercises, group brainstorming, and feedback sessions. Participants who sign up for the entire series will also get up to 1 hour of individual feedback from Sossity via email or google docs on the pieces they are working on in the series. The Friday following the last workshop will be October Dirty Queer, which is a great potential stage to try out the new pieces on!* (*All pieces read at Dirty Queer must be about sex, sexuality or gender, as usual. A resource guide of local open mics and useful links for writers will be provided.) Week One: The brain. This workshop is about finding our words, and laying a strong foundation to build them on. We'll use guided writing exercises, group brainstorming, and constructive feedback sessions to find bits of language that speak to us, and begin the writing process on at least one piece. Week Two: The gut. This workshop is about connecting our new language to the impulses that we receive from that secondary bundle of neurons in our gut - that instinct, or intuition, that we're so often taught to ignore. We'll use similar tools, but take our pieces to the next level – editing for visual and vocal impact. Week Three: The mouth. This workshop is about opening the pathway from your voice to their minds, gut and heart – framing those words with air shaped with intention for the impact you want to make. We'll work on timing, breathing, and intonation, as well as a final level of polishing and constructive feedback. During the spaces between these workshops, participants will have homework assignments, and the opportunity to solicit up to 1 hour of email feedback* from Sossity on the pieces being work shopped. (*No more than 4 email exchanges total, time to be tracked by Sossity with a 15 min notice to the participant when it's almost up.) $25/workshop or $60 for all three* (*pre-paid only) 4 low income scholarships ($10/workshop)* (*essay submission, preference given to people of color/people with disabilities) 11am-3pm at In Other Words - 15 person cap, 18+, bring your own food for the break. Accessibility info: + no steps to the door, or inside the building + slight ramp between the two areas of the building + aprox 3' width for the entrance + gender neutral bathroom (variable wheelchair access to the bathroom - it's wide, but there is a 90 degree turn from hallway to room, and no rail) + ramp to the stage + sturdy folding chairs and some couches + we ask that folks be low scent or scent free + please leave your furry companions at home unless they are service animals If you have any questions, please contact Sossity: sossitywrites@gmail.com

The husband and wife duo's extraordinary harmonies and proficiency on a parade of stringed instruments create an alluring frame for their poignant original songs, and carefully chosen traditional pieces. James Faretheewell is originally from the North Texas plains. As soon as he could sling a guitar over his shoulder and thumb down a semi, he was on his way to Big D (Dallas, Texas) where he cut his musical teeth on Texas road house rock, hard rock, punk rock and folk rock. Curtis & James are old friends from their days in Texas, and haven't seen each other since. This will be a great, musical reunion!

Join the BTA at the Downtown Hillsboro Farmers' Market (http://hillsboromarkets.org/markets/hillsboro/) to gather signatures for our petition for a safer TV Highway. We'll also have time to enjoy the market! The Tualatin-Valley Highway (TV Highway) is the only east-west route connecting the communities of Beaverton, Aloha-Reedville, Hillsboro, Cornelius, and Forest Grove. This big street needs to have protected bike lanes and sidewalks or a multi-use path in order to safely accommodate everyone who uses this important community route.

This group meets the second Saturday of every month for a B.Y.O.B. (Bring Your Own Brunch) Feminist Meet Up and Discussion group. Eat, drink, and bash patriarchy with fellow feminists. This discussion group is a friendly, open, exchange of ideas on a different topic each month. This group is only open to those who identify as female. This months discussion: Where is the anger? I was watching a documentary the other day that included a 2nd wave feminist and her daughter. The daughter said “I’m just not as angry as my mom’s generation was.” The next cut had her mother who was close to tears saying “I am so afraid that future generations of women are going to have to lose the rights we fought so hard for before they will actually get angry.” This month we will ask ourselves, what am I angry about? When do I suppress my anger through rationalizing, laughing it off, etc? How can I use anger as a tool to empower myself and others? Check these articles out to help guild our discussion! http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2013/feb/26/feminists-sexy-funny-anger-changes-world http://www.blackpast.org/1981-audre-lorde-uses-anger-women-responding-racism http://www.poetryfoundation.org/poem/178526 "If ever there comes a time where the women of the world unite, it will be a force such as the world has never seen."

A reading group for science fiction/fantasy works with themes and characters that provoke discussions about the concepts of gender and sexuality.The sci-fi/fantasy genre allows us to intimately experience worlds in which the rules/laws of our own world can be cast aside and different structures, (biological, technological, psychological, sociological, etc.) can be explored. Our intention is to read books that fall into the general category of science fiction or fantasy, expanding our selections as the group sees fit. Authors such as Octavia Butler, Ursula LeGuin, and James Tiptree are examples, but there are no set limitations on who we will read. The books we choose to read may leave us feeling positive and affirmed, but they may also leave us depressed or angry, hopefully they will always be thought-provoking, stimulating and challenging.

As part of their annual celebration of Halloween, Hood River merchants will welcome ghouls and goblins from 5-7pm on October 31. To ensure a “Safe Halloween” time for everyone, the City of Hood River will close Oak Street between 1st and 6th streets, as well as the connecting side streets north of State Street and south of Cascade Avenue. Free parking is available from 5-7pm at the Mt. Hood Railroad parking lot. During Safe Halloween, many merchants throughout all of downtown (not just in the street-closure area) will close their businesses but remain on site at the front of their stores to greet and treat costumed young people. Parents are encouraged to accompany their children, and take care when crossing the streets, as people may need to move parked vehicles during the closure period

Welcome to the official 2014 Million Mask March event page for PDX. We will be meeting at Elephant Park (NW 8th & Burnside) on November 5th @ 1pm. Further details will be released as we get closer to the day of the event. However, one detail we can release is that we will once again be collecting blankets, food, warm clothes, and other supplies. This year's Million Mask March will also be the first event of #OpSafeWinter for the season, so after the initial rally we will be delivering these donations to Right 2 Dream Too. At the end of the march, we will be having a rally and feast for marchers and any other hungry people who find their way to us. So far, ¿Por Que No? Taqueria and Addy's Sandwich Bar are sponsoring the feast. Last year was a huge success, with over 300 people showing up, so let's try to at least double that this year! This march is focused on bringing activists of every color & focus together to share information and positive energy, showing the power of free & caring people, and celebrating the rising consciousness of the human race. This is a completely peaceful, non-violent event. Do not bring negative energy or intentions that would be dangerous to yourself or others around you. Not only is aggression exactly what the police & media want you to give them, but it makes people completely overlook your message. Bring a mask (if you don't have one, there will be 500 Guy Fawkes masks on hand), your voice, a sign, a musical instrument, a smudge, a donation of food, warm clothes, blankets, or other survival supplies... and a friend (or 2)! Bring anything you think will add to the positive energy of the day and spread the message of freedom, love, peace, and positive change! Please feel free to bring flyers, stickers, or anything else to give to other attendees and the general public. If it's important to you, come share it with other open-minded, caring people. Want to give a speech? You can. Want to sit in the back and just take it all in? That's great too. Keep checking back for more information & updates about the event. If you've got an idea, please share it! Until then brothers & sisters, keep up the good fight. Remember that EVERY thing you do changes the world, whether it's smiling at strangers, feeding a hungry person, tagging an overpass, buying soap that isn't tested on animals, or talking to a co-worker about the importance of eating organic & non-GMO. Be the change you want to see in the world! http://www.facebook.com/events/443658732435701/

Kundalini yoga & Meditation with Anna Thursdays 9:30 am -11am Kundalini yoga uses postures, chanting and meditation to help us connect to the divine teacher within. This practice helps move energy along the spine, stimulates the endocrine system, decreases stress and eliminates toxins. Kundalini yoga can help to clear subconscious conditioning that no longer serves us. It can be helpful for those living with mental illness and addiction. It promotes positive self-esteem and forward momentum in new directions. Kundalini Yoga (as taught by Yogi Bhajan) is accessible to all people, all genders, all sexual identities and orientations, all races, classes, ages, abilities, sizes, and all language backgrounds. All levels are welcome! This class is perfect for both beginners and experienced yogis who wish to add mantra and meditation to their practice. Suggested Donation $5-10.

A reading group for science fiction/fantasy works with themes and characters that provoke discussions about the concepts of gender and sexuality.The sci-fi/fantasy genre allows us to intimately experience worlds in which the rules/laws of our own world can be cast aside and different structures, (biological, technological, psychological, sociological, etc.) can be explored. Our intention is to read books that fall into the general category of science fiction or fantasy, expanding our selections as the group sees fit. Authors such as Octavia Butler, Ursula LeGuin, and James Tiptree are examples, but there are no set limitations on who we will read. The books we choose to read may leave us feeling positive and affirmed, but they may also leave us depressed or angry, hopefully they will always be thought-provoking, stimulating and challenging.

If you are intrigued by RPGs and/or story games, but have had your doubts about jumping into an established group or felt uncomfortable going to another organized gaming event, you are SUPER DUPER EXTRA welcome.Story games are a little bit like board games, and a lot like grown-up versions of the “let’s pretend” games you probably played as a child. Above all, they are about TELLING A STORY TOGETHER. It’s not about winning or losing, it’s not about making the best character or mastering the rules, it’s about CREATING something together and HAVING FUN. These games take no more than a few minutes to learn, play within a couple of hours, and focus on story rather than rules. Come check it out! We're always looking for more folks to help facilitate, so shoot me a message or post below if you have a game you'd like to share!Let's enjoy each others' company and play quick, easy-to-learn, story-based role playing games in a welcoming female-centered environment. The games don't usually begin until 6:30 but feel free to join us for witty banter before hand.

Last year Third Rail made a splash at the holidays with our record-setting production of NOISES OFF, which many consider the funniest play written in the past 25 years. This year we're at it again with perhaps the funniest American play of the past 25 years: Charles Ludlam's quick change romp, THE MYSTERY OF IRMA VEP. Two actors play all the roles in this hilarious send up of Victorian melodrama, farce, 50’s horror movies, Wuthering Heights, and Hitchcock's Rebecca. With elaborate quick changes performed in mere seconds, wildly absurd characters, and an absolute distaste for anything serious, IRMA VEP should be the perfect gut-busting escape from all that holiday noise!

Tis the season and Hood River, Oregon is the place to be. Known as the “Holiday Town of Oregon,” downtown Hood River is ready again this year to transform into a classic holiday setting. Along the main street, visitors will find beautifully lit holiday trees, decorated storefronts, and lots of unique shopping options—including handmade items, beautiful clothing, jewelry, sports gear, books and art, and local wines, jams, and jellies. The kick-off party happens the first Friday of December, with an old-fashioned parade, lighting of the community tree, caroling, cocoa and cookies, and, of course, Santa. Hood River Holidays will begin on December 5th, and continue through the 24th.
